During bouts of fast growth, tweens and teens have larger appetites. Keeping your refrigerator and cupboards stocked with healthy foods can help promote healthy living in your tween or teen. Also, eating a healthy breakfast is very important because it gives your teen or tween the mental energy they need to get through the morning. At this age, it is also a good idea to allow your child to learn how to prepare their own meals. Below are a few snack ideas that will be sure to please your hungry tween or teen! To help support your child's development and create healthy eating habits, it is best to prepare snacks that have a little protein along with some complex carbohydrates. These snacks are not only filling and satiating, but they can also fill nutritional gaps in a typical teen's diet.

Hard Boiled Eggs and an Apple

A hard-boiled egg or two is perfect for a teen looking to gain muscle or lose weight. Add an apple to the equation for fiber and energy. In fact, an apple can provide as much energy as a cup of coffee.

A Slice of Cheese and a Handful of Almonds

The cheese is a great source of calcium and the almonds are a plentiful source of healthy fat, protein, and fiber.

Whole Wheat Bread and Hummus

The bread is a source of complex carbohydrates (energy) and fiber and the hummus is a great source of protein.

Apple with Reduced-Fat Peanut Butter

With perfect amounts of fat, carbohydrates, and protein, this is the best snack! To make it even healthier try making your own nut butter by grinding up nuts such as almonds and cashews in your food processor.
